JetBlue New Tail Pattern!

Mon Jan 19, 2004 3:34 am

Well folks, looking through the new pictures, I stumbled across this and lo and behold- it's jetBlue's new pattern!

I did a search and didnt find anything on it, so I figured Id post..

Personally, it's not as good as the other 5, but still, not bad!

I like the new design...
I'm a big admirer of Airbus but their aircrafts would do nicely with bigger windows, don't you think?

Yeah, I was thinking it looks like some sort of Scottish clan tartan design! I like it, though.  Big thumbs up

No offense...but it's the first decent one yet.
The others are too simply.

Expect a new tail design each year (don't know how long they will do it......I'm sure for awhile).

BA world tails come to mind...

BTW, the green fuselage looks cool. Should keep that. Just kidding.

Dazed- I wasnt expecting the 6th so soon... The new ones seemingly always rolled out around jetBlue's birthday (Feb 11) and this one is just a tad early!

Tartan was the first thing that came to my mind. Tell me, what does jetBlue do with the previous aircraft? Keep the livery or paint the tails to match the other vertical stabilizers?

Crazy...scotch tape was my first impression too. It looks good though, can't wait to see it in service!

Similar to Frontier, they keep the old tail designs. It kinda helps to date the aircraft. You know around when they were delivered based on the tail design. I really like this one. Hopefully I'll get to fly them soon.

The photo caption says the photo was taken at Toulon, France - but Toulouse, France would make more sense to me. Can anybody confirm that it's Toulouse?

I'm pretty sure it was Toulouse. All of aircraft's testing and checks are done their prior to delivery. This particular aircraft will join the B6 fleet at the end of February.
None shall pass!!!!

Does anyone know what the tail # is going to be on this a/c? If it is 584 it is already in MCO getting set up.
